Montreal-bound Air Transat flight makes emergency stop in Paris
More than 300 passengers are resuming their journey to Montreal after their Air Transat flight from Italy had to make an emergency landing in France.
The airline says flight T-S-571 took off from Venice yesterday but had to make an emergency stop at Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport due to a technical problem with a floor heating panel.
Spokeswoman Debbie Cabana says the landing went smoothly and the health of the passengers was not compromised.
The 310 passengers spent the night in Paris and departed for Montreal this morning in a different aircraft.
Cabana says the passengers will be eligible for compensation.
